I do understand Joe & crew’s positive reinforcement of what can only be described as “The bare, fucking minimum,” from the President. It’s good to encourage truth telling, but we’ve seen Trump do his thing for years, and he will return to form within hours. Meachum was correct: this is another Lucy & the football moment. We’ll have many more of them, because that’s what he does.
If the President starts calling in again, cool. But if Joe isn’t merciless in his questioning during those opportunities, fuck him, and fuck this show. I don’t need another reporter afraid and/or unwilling to confront Trump properly.
